flipping the floor plan of a split level
there's a slim chance i can buy my dream property. it has a very nice and beautifully kept small split level home on it. the kitchen is galley and faces the backyard. living room faces glorious view and has glorious fireplace too.
there is a big wall between the two rooms, probably won't be able to open the space up.
therefore i'd like to think about switiching the rooms' functions.
i'd wrap the living room with windows and base cabinets, and make a big eat in kitchen in that space. the small galley kitchen would be wider without cabinets so i'd like to make that into a small reading room.
in our family we all gather in the kitchen, and rarely socialise in the living room. a cozy little space could feel nice for a drink at night i think.
i know plumbing, gas lines and power all have to be dealt with, but user-friendly-wise does it seem like a good idea?
p.s. if i buy this house i hope to live there forever.
